Transcript of Throat cancer

By Jeremy Park Throat Cancer What is it Throat cancer is a cancer that develops in the throat, voice box or tonsils.The throat is a muscular tube that is behind the nose and in the end of the neck. The voice box is made up of vocal cords that vibrate to make a sound when you talk. What are the risk factors The risk factors are exactly unknown, but as doctors say, 80% of the risk factors are known to be as tobacco use. Other main factors are known as regular and heavy consumption of alcohol or even family history of cancer. What are the effects The effect of throat cancer is that it can invade the deeper tissues inside the muscle if it is not cured and you could know that you have a throat pain when you have a persistent cough, a swelling or lump in the throat, or swallowing difficulties etc. How is it treated? When the tutor is small, either surgery or radiation therapy could be used to remove it. But when the tumor is larger or has been become bigger, a combination of chemotherapy and radiation is often used to preserve the voice box. Also, some patients might need a swallowing therapy after the to help adjust the structure of the throat. How can it be prevented? Throat Cancer can be prevented by not smoking, not drinking too much alcohol. For men, two drinks a day is two drinks a day and for women is one drink a day. Also, choosing a fruit and a vegetable's vitamins and antioxidants reduce the risk of your throat cancer.
